This dog was heartlessly abandoned at a petrol station. But now 'Negao' has turned his life around in the most beautiful way.
Alone and confused, Negao, loyally waited at the service station in Brazil for days in the hope his humans would return. They never did. But fate had actually dealt him a surprising hand.
The owner of the gas station, Sabrina Platerrer, began offering him food as a way of winning his trust. But Negao quickly won more than that. So taken was she with him that she organised for him to be wormed, vaccinated and microchipped. But she didn't stop there. She also gave him the loving home he so desperately needed. She then gave him something he didn't expect. A job; and the self belief that comes with it. He has become the calming 'comfort dog' at the same comfort stop.
Negao now meets and greets all the tired and occasionally stressed motorists the only way he knows how - with all the love and innocence of a dog delighted with his new life...
I am going to be blunt here, because until I became blunt with myself nothing changed. If you are suffering from Depression, anxiety PTSD or any form of mental illness, unless you seek help you will not get better, period! Only you can help yourself, family and friends can try their best to help you but if you don’t take responsibility and want to help yourself, you will not get better.
We like to be the victim, Some of you may be thinking what would I know? Fair question. Well if your in a deep black hole, and feel no one understands what you’re going through? I have been there… My hole got so deep and so dark I decided to kill myself, and I attempted too. Luckily for me I was saved by my dog Trigger seconds before the end and I am still here today.
I was a victim, a victim to myself! The moment I took responsibility and stopped blaming others and convincing myself they have no idea what I am going through and got some help was the moment things started to change for the better. If you break your leg and ignore it, it will not fix its self. Yet, so many of us ignore our own broken Mental Health for years. You are where you are because of you. Only you can change your position.
If you sit back and play the victim you will remain the victim, if you step up and ask for help you will surprise yourself, you are not a looser, life isn’t worthless you are just not thinking clearly. It is not going to be easy, in fact it will be hard, exhausting and there will be tears. But some short term hard work for a good life? Seems worth it to me!
My only regret in my 28 years is not seeking help earlier. I have lost 5 years of my life to alcohol abuse and feeling sorry for myself. Please, please don’t make the same mistake as me. Learn from it.
John and Jill have been married for almost 44 years and even today these lyrics still ring true.
"So I wrote just a little song to say how much I really love you baby, pretty lady Just a lover's song to let you know, you're really quite a lady, pretty lady And I want this song to be just for my Jillie I love you Jillie"
If you want to understand the dangers of allowing too much foreign ownership of our Australian industry and business all you have to do is look at what's going on in Queensland as our cane farmers struggle against the foreign owned business Wilmar.
So if you want to learn more about how allowing too much foreign ownership can have some serious negative consequences you might want to watch my latest speech on the floor of the senate because I explain exactly what happened to get us into this sorry state.
